Nestled in the foothills of the Georgia Blue Ridge Mountains lies Lake Lanier, one of America`s favorite lakes. Visitors can spend some quality time in one of the Lake`s towns: Cumming, Gainesville, Buford, and Flowery Branch. Over 10 million people visit the lake annually and it is best known for its recreational opportunities. Lake Lanier has 76 recreational areas, including 40 Corps-operated parks and campgrounds, 10 marinas, and Lake Lanier Islands. The lake is popular with boaters, houseboats, jet skiers and others, particularly around the summer holidays. It was created by the completion of Buford Dam on the Chattahoochee River in 1956, and is also fed by the waters of the Chestatee River.
